China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) on Tuesday (7 December) said it has recently been awarded the first Marine Ammonia Fuel Supply Approval in Principle (AiP) certificate from classification society RINA for the design of ammonia marine fuel supply system for the domestic market.
Ammonia fuel, as the focus of attention in recent years, is considered to be one of the best options for marine high-power engines to help the shipping industry meet future greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) regulations.
The ammonia fuel supply system is independently developed by China Shipbuilding Power Group.
The system is designed in strict accordance with IGF rules and relevant regulations of classification societies, and is developed by relying on CSS Power Group’s experience in the fields of multi-fuel engines and LNG/LPG gas supply systems.
During the design process, China Shipbuilding Power Group conducted in-depth discussions with RINA on the gas properties of ammonia fuel, system principles, process flow, safety and reliability, etc., to comprehensively improve the design of its ammonia fuel supply system.
After multiple rounds of evaluation by RINA classification society, it finally obtained an approval of principle of ammonia fuel supply system (AiP) certificate.

Webinar will offer delegates insights on the prevention of operational issues when using VLSFOs, along with an update on biofuels and bunker fuel quality trends for 2021 and its forecast for the current year.
Heating VLSFOs to prevent cold flow issues causes issues related to distillate ageing, and there is a gentle balance to be maintained when handling the product.
Research into n-paraffin distribution of VLSFOs has shown that they not only differ from MGO, but significantly differ from each other as well, states bulletin.
